    When Medicare was enacted in 1965, nearly one in three seniors lived in poverty. Medicare still plays a critical role in the financial and health security of older Americans today. That’s why it is so crucial, especially in the COVID-19 era, to understand the current benefits under Medicare, as well as any changes coming to the program in 2021.

    Did you know that Medicare Advantage plans are expanding telehealth coverage? Or that, in 2021, Medicare will begin paying for acupuncture? Are you aware of what COVID-19’s impact will be on Medicare?

    Join Consumer Action for a live webinar on Tuesday, Nov. 10, when they will host a training on “Medicare: What You Need to Know in the COVID-19 Era,” led by Micki Nozaki, director of the California Senior Medicare Patrol project at California Health Advocates.

    Here’s what you can learn:

    • What changes are coming to Medicare in 2021
    • How telemedicine and telehealth are being expanded
    • What seniors’ out-of-pocket costs for COVID-19 treatment will be
    • How Medicare fraud jeopardizes the health and welfare of older adults and people with disabilities
    • What kinds of COVID-19-related healthcare scams are happening
    • How Medicare beneficiaries bear the cost of fraud through higher deductibles and copayments
    • How senior advocates can protect clients and consumers from Medicare fraud

    According to a recent Gallup survey of parents of school-aged children, nearly three in 10 say the pandemic is already taking a toll on their children’s emotional or mental health, and another 14% indicate that their children are “approaching their limits.” School closures, social distancing and other measures taken to slow the spread of COVID-19 have upended daily routines and norms for children and adolescents. The survey shows that nearly half of kids find the separation from their classmates and teachers a “major challenge.”

    At the same time, the move to online learning platforms has heightened concerns about pre-existing privacy issues and presented some new ones.

    Join Consumer Action on Tuesday, Nov. 17, when they will host a webinar focusing on the “Impact of COVID-19 on the Mental Health of Children and Adolescents, and How to Protect Children’s Privacy Online.” The webinar will be led by Dr. Jamie Aten, executive director of the Humanitarian Disaster Institute and Blanchard Chair of Humanitarian and Disaster Leadership at Wheaton College; attorney Ariel Fox Johnson, senior counsel for policy and privacy at Common Sense Media; and Bill Fitzgerald, privacy researcher at Consumer Reports.

    The webinar will cover:

    • Insights into ways COVID-19 is impacting children’s mental health
    • Practical tips for how to support children through the pandemic
    • Privacy and security in the era of remote learning
    • How state and federal privacy laws apply to virtual learning
    • How to protect your family’s privacy during remote learning
    • Privacy issues with behavior tracking apps in the classroom and at home
    • Resources

    During the past five years, the disconnect between the strength of the U.S. economy and the financial security of households has grown. During 2020, it’s more clear than ever that household financial security is both a pre-requisite and a driver of economic recovery. If we don’t have resilient households, we cannot achieve recovery.

    Financial insecurity is the product of many failing systems across the public, private and nonprofit sectors. And yet, these systems must work together for people and communities to achieve short-term stability and long-term wealth generation.

    The Aspen Institute Financial Security Program has, for five years, tracked the challenges that face American households, and we have a vision for what business, government, philanthropic leaders must do for the next five.

    Join us on November 18 at 1:00 pm EST for:

    -A synthesis of the macro- and micro-economic trends that households have faced that have led us to today

    -What old models of financial security get wrong – and a new framework to guide a more comprehensive approach

    -A roadmap for business leaders, policymakers, and philanthropy for the next five years that will address the core economic and policy system failures let down the majority of U.S. households

    Attendees will also receive a copy of the forthcoming report, “The State of Financial Security 2020.” The report marks the occasion of the Aspen Financial Security Program’s fifth anniversary and offers a vision for leaders across government, business, and philanthropy to understand their role in rebuilding an economy which centers on household financial well-being.
